    There are monks and priests, there are astronauts and scientists. There are geniuses like Newton and Einstein and there are Ankit/ Prithvi/ RD/ Golu/ Shaquib they will go to any lengths to make your stay comfortable and more memorable. They are very friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable regarding the places to visit in Manali. They handle everything with grace, charm and professionalism. The hostel is situated in the heart of Himalayas. Rooftop Cafe is amazing and the food is delicious.

    My stay here was much better than I expected, considering it was a budget option in Manali. Upon my arrival, I was happy to see the stunning backdrop of mountains and trees, with Jogini Waterfall in the distance. The team of managers and staff were super friendly and gave me all the information I needed for making my way around Manali and other places closeby. The food was really good and it was a cozy stay and I will definitely return to Backpacker Panda Manali!

    This place was excellent for the location and the price. Since the price was low enough I was able to get a larger room and ended up meeting some cool people.
